Original material

Sunday Drivers Part Two

Buzzer and Ripper are about to blast Bazooka but he turns the A.W.E. Striker at the last moment and crashes into a women's clothes store. The Dreadnoks speed off on their motorcycles through the precinct and Bazooka chases them around, with Alfred Taylor pointing the way to find them more than once. The Dreadnoks smash through a hardware store, sending cans of oil rolling all over the place. They head downstairs but Taylor has spread a large puddle of oil and they crash, dropping the gun. The Dreadnoks decide to flee. As Bazooka retrieves the gun he thanks Taylor and suggests a medal but Taylor's chest is already full of them. Bazooka salutes the old soldier and heads back for the test range.He radios Phelps to tell him the weapon has been retrieved but Flint is also there. He tells Bazooka that no doubt he's figured out the gun has a fundamental design flaw and doesn't work. As Flint leaves he notes he spotted a hole in the fence and orders him to send Bazooka to the shops to buy some fencing.
